The cheap BRM's are bare and raw




I sent my spare set of BRM's off for a chemical dip last week and got them back this afternoon.
 
Very pleased with the result and I expect that over time the alloy will darken which is the desired outcome (the oval window bug which they will be attached to is in a similar condition so they looked out of character in shiny black).


And just because I can, I have cleaned the original 'S' badge up and stuck it in one of the book cases.
 
I will replace it with 100% NOS parts and keep the original on display as a reminder of how much it was looked after, polished to primer and well, just plain enjoyed.
 
True patina.
